Orangetheory 5K at Labor Day Lift Off


Join us for the 2nd annual Orangetheory 5k at Labor Day Lift Off on Sunday, September 3, 2023

Starting from the IAFF Fallen Firefighters Memorial (northwest corner of Memorial Park), head through the side streets of Memorial Park, around Prospect Lake and finish back at the memorial.

The 5K race will start at 9 a.m. on Sunday, September 3rd, but come early and watch around 70 balloons take to the sky and enjoy shopping and vendors before the run!
